Re: Cryptocurrencies

On one hand I feel bad for him but borrowing 500k for crypto is crazy in my simple mind.
I have money in four cryptos on coinbase.The last week or so has suuuuucked but its not like I will not be able to take care of my obligations if I lose what I speculated.
My weed stock took a dump after doing pretty good.Now its in the black again.
Still wont risk what I cant afford to lose.I wont be happy but not life altering like a 500k loan.

Yea, word...I looked into capitalizing on the craziness w/ a small investment but bowed out when it started to go south. I made a small profit. I'm making much bigger profits off of precious metals and the miners at the moment. It's a much safer investment as it will never go to zero. Regardless of what the MSM and the propaganda will have you believe, gold/silver IS real money. Of course the deep state propaganda don't want you to realize this. They are the contrarians. Do exactly what they don't tell you to.

Re: Cryptocurrencies

I want more gold but Ill wait till my guy calls with a deal.Usually get it just below spot.Should have bought all of the last package he had but coulda,shoulda,woulda
I did two mutual funds.OAKMX and SWPPX that SEEM like decent funds for long term(10 years or more)but Ill put more into land or buy vehicles at wholesale for a safer return.Both them funds have done 18-19% when the economy wasnt too friendly.

Re: Cryptocurrencies

I've been studying the PM field for a long time and have been holding steady and adding when it has got ridiculously low. It's now coming to fruition. I'm anticipating some serious gains. I'm already realizing some.

Re: Cryptocurrencies

A lot of people losing money on this bubble. Russia gold reserves have recently hit historic highs w/ 223 tons accumulated last year. Central bankers down talk the use of gold as money while they quietly accumulate it.

Re: Cryptocurrencies

Bitcoin always sound interesting to me, but I was investing in my business and not in "gambling", now my assets give me some money to gamble a little, so I am trying to buy some crypto to gamble)
